Well, it’s official. Nobody’s trying to hear Robin Thicke beg over an entire album.

His latest effort “Paula,” an attempt to win back his estranged wife Paula Patton, has sold just 530 first-week copies in the United Kingdom.

Five hundred and thirty.

The album entered the Official U.K. albums chart at No. 200 and managed just 2% of the sales of Thicke’s previous album, “Blurred Lines,” reports The Guardian. In comparison, “Blurred Lines” sold over 25,000 first-week copies in the U.K. and topped the albums chart.

The poor performance of “Paula” in the U.K. mirrors its tepid domestic sales. While 2013’s “Blurred Lines” moved 177,000 first-week copies in the U.S. and gave the artist his first No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart, “Paula” sold approximately 25,000 copies.

The low sales follow a disastrous PR campaign, which reached a ridiculous low with the #AskThicke Q&A on Twitter, which quickly became a way for fans to ridicule the crooner about his infidelity.
